When expertise and motivation join forces exceptional materials are made.
We are proud of the skills we have acquired over the decades and the commitment of our employees. We are committed to maintaining proven production standards and are continuously developing innovative processes for safer and more efficient production.
In this way we become a reference in the market, benefiting our customers and the environment.
the first step toward quality
BÖHLER has revolutionized steel production. We are a leader in the field of smelting metallurgy and, thanks to our innovations, represent a benchmark in the world of steels. We back up what we claim with continuous development and state-of-the-art production systems. Vacuum melting and remelting (VIM, VAR), advanced remelting processes under electroscoria in a protective atmosphere, and the highest metallurgical purity are the key points of the BÖHLER steel mill.
The result: more than 200 types of high-speed steels, tool steels and special materials that meet the most complex requirements.
The ever-increasing demand for equipment stimulates the demand for new high-performance materials. The answer: high-performance materials produced using powder metallurgy, with uniformly distributed carbides for excellent characteristics in use.
Specific knowledge in metallurgy forms the basis of “problem-solving” and offers our customers a decisive competitive advantage. In order to ensure high quality standards in the long run, we have adopted the most modern powder metallurgy production system in the world.
At our rolling mills, we produce round and flat profile bars and wire with high precision and quality. The reproducibility of the process, high level of flexibility and proximity to our customers make us a world leader.
To meet our customers’ demands, materials are forged by 5,200-ton hydraulic press or by horizontal hammering machine.
Note: dimensions depend on the material!
|round||12,5 – 150 mm|

|Surface finish: black (sandblasted); pickled; machined (turned, peeled, polished h 12 – h 9); ground – polished|
With a wide range of finishing processes, specific needs can be met quickly and with the quality we are always known for. Rolled bars are subjected to heat treatment according to customer specifications and then processed and inspected.
We can meet any requirement in terms of surface finish: peeling, polishing,belt grinding, turning and milling or cutting in the required tolerance class.
